Saturday, March 27, 2021 Camp Helen Monthly Bird Survey
We will meet @ the Camp Helen front gate at 6:00 am sharp. Although we typically finish birding about noon, you can spend as much or as little time as you like. 
Please RSVP [only necessary if you plan to come] to lpca08@gmail.com so we have an idea of how many participants to wait for at the gate. Bring binoculars, scope [if you have one], water and snacks, hat and sunscreen. Looking forward to it!

​ 
Note: Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, our field trips will be adhering to recommended guidelines to prevent spread of the disease. If you are immunocompromised or have serious medical problems, you may not want to participate. If you have a fever, cough or other symptoms, please stay home. Masks are strongly recommended, at least for the first part of the trip where we gather to start our hike. Carpooling is not recommended, except, of course, by members of the same household. For that reason, all our trips are local. We hope to continue longer trips next season. You are advised to bring hand sanitizer and are asked not to share food, optics or other items. Our groups will consist of no more than 10 people. If we have more than that, we will break up into separate groups.

Saturday, April 3, 2021  Panama City Beach Conservation Park. 7:30AM Bring your binoculars, walking shoes, drinks, face masks and hand sanitizer. We adhere to Covid-19 precautions so please maintain 6-foot distances from each other and do not share equipment or food. Here’s how to get there: From the intersection of Panama City beach Parkway and State Road 79, travel west on Panama City Beach Parkway approximately 1.2 miles to the traffic light at Griffin Blvd. Turn right and proceed north to the end of Griffin Blvd. Park entrance is on the left. Follow Conservation Drive to parking lot on the right. Most likely we will break up into two separate groups. This is a particularly good time to spot migrating birds here as well as other sites along the Gulf.
